Elysia Premiers Niveau – Free Filter Plug-In For Mac & PC
Elysia has released Niveau, a free plug-in that features the filter section of the company’s mpressor. This filter mojo is its ability to change the overall sonic character of a signal.
Whenever a classic shelving filter would be too limited and a fully parametric filter would be too much, the niveau filter is where you should direct your attention according to the company. Its main function is to change the proportions between high and low frequencies. The principle is quite similar to a pair of scales: Dependent on the gain setting around a variable center frequency, the high frequencies are boosted whereas the low frequencies are attenuated (or vice versa) at the same time.
The center frequency can be shifted continuously between 26 Hz and 2.2 kHz or between 260 Hz and 22 kHz respectively (when the x10 switch is activated). The characteristics of the filter change in the extreme positions of the EQ Gain controller: the fully counter-clockwise setting will produce a low pass filter; fully clockwise position will result in a high pass filter.
Elysia’s free Niveau filter plug-in is available in the RTAS, VST and AU flavors for Mac and PC. More information on the Elysia Niveau filter plug-in.
